Hey guys! Today I am sharing with you my December Boxycharm! I recently posted my 2019 Boxycharm favourites and my 2019 beauty favourites. Now back to Boxycharm! I got my box right before I went to Punta Cana, so I didn’t get much of a chance to test out these products. If I change my mind about any of these products I will let you guys know!
The first product is the Storybook Cosmetics Fairy Tales palette. I got Little Red Riding Hood specifically. The formula of the shadows is great. The mattes blended well and the shimmers applied easily to the eyes. But I have a few problems with this palette. First I’m not a huge fan of the colour story. I get that it’s Little Red Riding Hood, so obviously there has to be a red shade. But it’s not the most wearable, everyday palette. The packaging is super cute but also extremely bulky. I think they could have cut the palette in half and it would have still been cute. I will display this palette on my vanity, but I don’t think I would use it very often. Price: $35 US
Next up is the Brow Makeover Kit by the Brow Bar. First, I can’t use the illuminator because it’s too deep, but the brow shades match me perfectly. The powders were mediocre, nothing to rave above. Same with the brow gel. But the wand is too large to it’s hard to use. Overall it’s not bad but I would recommend other products over this one. Price: $30 US
Next is the Seraphine Botanical Lip Exfoliator. It’s a good lip exfoliator. With winter here, my lips are quite dry and this goes a good job of scrubbing away all the dead skin. It also has a nice scent. But I have to wipe my lips after, and I find that all the hydration goes away after that. So while it does a good job exfoliating, I have to use a lip balm after which is annoying. Price: $24 US
My favourite product is the Saturday Skin Waterfall Glacier Water Cream. It reminds me of my favourite Laneige moisturizer. It is very gel-like, but doesn’t leave my skin sticky or anything. It sinks into the skin quickly and is very hydrating. I like this moisturizer and will continue to use it! Price: $35 US, $51 CA
The final product is the Ciate Marbled Light Illuminating Blusher. I received the shade Halo. This reminds me of the Laura Gellar baked blushes. This blush is very easy to apply and blends out well. It also gives a nice slight sheen to the face. I also don’t own a blush like this shade. I will continue to use this blush. Price: $26 US
And that is my December Boxycharm! The final price was $154 US, or approximately $199 CA. I like the blush and moisturizer, but the eyebrow kit was a real dud for me. What did you guys think? Let me know!
